FALL FAIRS NOT SUCCESS; FARMERS ALL TOO BUSY (By Our Own Sept No more late fall fairs for us If vve can't hod n in July or August vve won't hold one at all' The fall fair in Southern Alberta is doomed that is, the fair that comes aftei the start of haivest The above remark was made to the Herald repre- sentative a director the Ma- fcrath fair today and similar remarks by directors of the Taher and Grassy Lake fairs go to show that the late fall fair is highly unsatisfactory. In only one department has it any advan- tage on the fair held before the start of harvesting and that is in the dis- ulavs ot grains and vegetables. The [if late fair enables exhibitors to show the matured products of the year.
